I've used this as a base recipe for my stuffing ever since I started making my own Thanksgiving dinners. I use very little butter, preferring to moisten with homemade turkey stock instead. I saute mushrooms with the other veggies and add cooked bacon. (Everything tastes better with bacon!)What makes it the best, though, is cooking it inside the bird for all of the drippings to moisten and flavor it. I cook whatever won't fit in the bird in a casserole dish, then combine all after the turkey is cooked. If you're concerned about the stuffing being cooked sufficiently in the turkey, you can cover and cook awhile longer while the bird is resting. It's by far our family's favorite dressing.
